Argentina to lose last of Falklands war junta

The head of the Argentine Navy, Rear Admiral Jorge Isaac Anaya, who helped instigate the Falklands war against Britain, will announce his resignation next week and step down by early October, government sources said.

They added that the departure of Mr. Anaya, the only armed forces leader who fought the Falklands war and retained his post, would help to reunify the military junta split by the country's defeat. Argentine President Reynaldo Bignone, meanwhile, continued contacts with the country's political leaders in preparation to restore democracy by the promised date of March, 1984.
